Summer heat is beginning to abate, with some early mornings this week in the high 50s, just like autumn! It is a great time to get downtown and enjoy another evening of Music on Main with the car club. This time we took a picnic. I would have loved to use my Farmer’s Market Picnic quilt, but I have agreed to have it hang in the Apple Festival Quilt Show. I didn’t want to take a chance of it getting filthy before the show, so left it at home.
I wanted to make a special picnic, so I found these crusty rolls at the deli. I added little spinach salads with my Cranberry Vinaigrette, raw carrots, grapes and cheese, and summer sausage.
The sandwiches were peppercorn turkey with horseradish aoli, and fresh lettuce on those crusty rolls. I like to wrap in wax paper to keep the rolls crispy. I put a little sprig of lettuce on the top of mine so I can easily see which one is the larger for DH.
I cheated with the cookies, as I didn’t have time to bake from scratch. I used the break apart and bake chocolate chip cookie dough from the store. One of these days I’ll remember to roll them into dough balls so the square shape of the dough isn’t so obvious, LOL!! Yet, not one person complained, they just grabbed them up and scarfed them down.
Once again, British cars are parked together, so our friends can picnic with us. We arrived at Music on Main’s car show early enough to have our picnic and see all the cars before the concert started.
All along Main Street in Hendersonville, antique and vintage cars line both sides of the street and down the middle of the road.
Did you want a Mustang when you were younger?
I have a soft spot for these two-tone Bel Air cars. We had a turquoise and cream one when I was a kid.
Lots of people strolling around in the wonderful cool evening, getting ready to enjoy two hours of live music at the Visitor’s Center Bandshell. Lots of cars from the 1940s came too. All total there were about 175 cars to see. If your DH is looking over your shoulder at the cars, there are more pictures on our car club event gallery at HERE.
This is the last Music on Main for the year, and it was a gorgeous evening to be outside. No rain this time! Tuxedo Junction plays oldies from mostly the 60s and 70s, with a bit of 50s thrown in here and there.
They played until well after dark, and we had a great time.
One more note (pardon the pun) about music. I recently found the neatest music video. Have you heard the song Sugar by Maroon 5? It is one of those fun songs that will stay with you for a bit. This video is so much fun, I must have watched it a dozen times now. The members of the group surprised seven brides at their wedding receptions all in the same day, according to the video. Take a look, and watch the faces of the brides and the audiences. They were all blown away, and you will be too. Sugar! Yes, Please!
